“A very difficult trail but the mid way viewpoint and top viewpoints make it worth it.”— Josh Robinson
Family Friendly Kids would love the first mile but I wouldn't let them go past that as the trail can become dangerous.
The trail is partly maintained up to the spit viewing area and not maintained at all past this point. There is a steep rise near the end of the trail that requires some scrambling, so make sure that you are prepared to undertake this challenge. You can still get to the top by following the trail but it can get scary at some points.
As the island is fairly lush with vegetation, shrubbery grows over the trail a fair bit. All of the struggle pays off in the end 100% as the view from the top is breathtaking.
